Day 1: Siem Reap Arrival (L/ - ) cycling distance – no clying
You will be met at the Siem Reap airport and transfer to your hotel. After check in, test your bicycles in order to ensure the bike is the correct size etc. The rest of the day is free for own exploration. This evening we will head out to dinner at one of the best restaurant in town.
Day 2: Siem Reap (B/L/ - ) cycling distance – 30km
We have a full day exploring Angkor Wat and its surrounding temples. After the bike fitting and safety briefing we ride to Angkor Wat and explore the magnificent temple complex.
We then relax at a restaurant with the temples as a backdrop – a more magnificent setting for a meal is hard to imagine. In the afternoon, cycle the Grand Circuit that includes the ancient walled city of Angkor Thom, the overgrown temple of Ta Prohm. We do stop at each major temple area and you will have plenty of time to explore and take pictures as your temple guide will inform you about the history of this magnificent area.
Day 3: Siem Reap – Banteay Srei – Kbal Spean (B/L/-) cycling distance – 50km
This morning after breakfast we cycle to the rose sandstone temple of Banteay Srei and explore the temple’s magnificent carvings. We will pass many local villages and schools and people going about their day-to-day business and get a really good feel for life in Cambodia.
On the way we have a chance to visit Banteay Samre, often missed but well worth a visit. This is one of the best rides on the tour. We stop at Banteay Srei for a well-earned rest before continuing on to Kbal Spean (River of 1,000 Lingas) and lunch at local restaurant. After lunch hiking to the top to view the riverbed carvings, we hike back to the start point and transfer by bus back to Siem Reap.
Day 4: Siem Reap – Rolous – Kompung Pluk (B/L/ - ) cycling distance – 46km
Today we leave the crowds behind and head towards the small village of Roulous, home to some of the oldest temples of the Angkor Complex. This beautiful 15km ride leads through rural Cambodia and offers plenty of opportunities to once more interact to the local people.
Upon reaching at Roulous we explore the three main temples – Lolei, Preah Ko and Bakong. After discovering the fabulous temple ruins we continue our bicycle ride to the floating village of Kompong Phhluk. The submerged forest makes this tranquil place unique and is a treat for visitors. We enjoy a boat tour around the village, between the trees breaking through the water surface and soak in the culture of living life on the water. Return for lunch at a local restaurant before cycle or drive back to Siem Reap.
Day 5: Siem Reap Departure (B/ - / - )
Our trip concludes today after breakfast. Transfer to the airport for your onwards flight.
